The announcement that the cruise ship will stay in Mobile came last night when Mayor Stimpson returned from Miami after finalizing an agreement with Carnival.

The original agreement between the city and the cruise line was negotiated in 2015 and was set to end in November 2017.  Nearly 200,000 cruisers are expected to pass through the cruise terminal this year with an economic impact estimated at $35 million.

Mayor Stimpson gave the following statement about Carnival Fantasy staying in Mobile: “This agreement is evidence of the positive working relationship between the City of Mobile and Carnival. We continue to build the momentum of the growing cruise industry in Mobile and are committed to expanding the cruising options and destinations both in and out of our port.

Carnival Fantasy is a 2,000 passenger cruise ship that went into service in 1990.  The cruise ship currently sails a series of four and five night cruises to the Western Caribbean out of Mobile, Alabama.  View Cruises on Carnival Fantasy
